This room is one of four in a pretty flat in the heart of downtown Yangon. Coffee shops, supermarkets, a Hindu temple and several Burmese and other restaurants are all in walking distance.

Jake, your host, is an American immigrant in Burma who will show you the good stuff.

The space

You'll have your own room with a queen bed, aircon, a desk and shelves for your stuff. You can use anything in the kitchen and wash your clothes with my washing machine. Wow. The toilet and shower are shared.

Guest access

You will have access to everything in the kitchen, a shower, a Western toilet, laundry supplies and a wealth of knowledge and experience from your host and his friends. There's also a big living room with sofas and a TV, a bunch of DVDs and a balcony overlooking downtown Yangon. Ask me about the rooftop if you want a really nice view.

Interaction with guests

If I'm free, we will interact a lot. There's always something to do in Yangon. Many guests have become lifelong friends.

Other things to note

My prices are relatively low because I want cool people to stay with me. No snobs please.

Nice house (really big) with lots of friendly people. Jake was overseas when we stayed and it took a bit of time to work out which room we were going to be staying in, but he was very helpful. The other housemates were really nice, and great to chat with. A little way out of the centre of town, but a nice place and good people.

Jake's place was great. He wasn't around but his friend was there to let me in, answer any questions and I would highly recommend it.
